Look at you. Running down a stretch of golden sand, a flower from the farmers market in your hair and a sun-kissed surfer playing his acoustic guitar nearby. You’re practically in a boy band video. Oh wait, you’re on holiday in Santa Monica.
This LA suburb is one of the best beach towns in California and the weather is divine all year round. Turning up in January, when the eastern U.S. is covered in snow? No problem, you’ll still be in jeans and sandals in Santa Monica. Even better, when you save money on lastminute.co.nz Santa Monica holiday packages, you’ll have a healthy budget for playing on the pier.
The famous Santa Monica Pier and bustling 3rd Street Promenade are must-visit spots in this lively beach town. After you’re done scarfing down a hamburger at a restaurant on the pier, smoke one of your travel buddies at the arcade. We can’t promise you’ll win the stuffed giraffe you have your eye on, but it’s worth a shot (even if you do have to buy him his own first class ticket on the flight home).
At the 3rd Street Promenade, you can spend your paycheque at mainstay shop Fred Segal and give a rousing round of applause to the street performers. Thanks to the pocket-sized nature of the town, your Santa Monica accommodation won’t be far from your favourite hang-outs.
The nearest airport is Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which is just 13km from Santa Monica. LA traffic got you worried? Just hop on the bus service that goes daily between the airport and the Santa Monica bus stop on 2nd Street and you don’t have to navigate on your own.
Once you’re in Santa Monica, you’ll find it pretty walkable. It is just 13 squarekm, after all. If you’d rather not saunter back to one of lastminute.co.nz’s hotels in Santa Monica after a cocktail or two, just call a taxi.
What’s the hold up? Great lastminute.co.nz deals on Santa Monica hotels with your name on them are waiting! If you want to explore Tinsel Town a bit more while you’re in SoCal, book a stay at one of the top Los Angeles hotels and get inspired for your next role.
